You should be ashamed of yourself.” Those words hit us in a place that other words rarely can. It’s a complicated emotion, and a difficult one to admit to ourselves, so we avoid it as far and as much as we can. Today we look at what causes us to feel shame, and what we can do to work through it, because letting it linger does more damage than good. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Brené Brown on shame, and its evolutionary purpose and why it no longer serves us
  • How it’s different from guilt 
  • Different types of shame and why we feel it
  • Way to heal shame
    • Be your own lawyer
    • The power of talking 
  • Carl Jung and Charles Dickens on shame
